Achromobacter xylosoxidans (most common human isolate), A. xylosoxidans denitrificans, A. piechaudii, A. ruhlandii, A. insolitus and A. spanius; gram negative rod, a non-fermenter. Some used to be called Alcaligenes.
Found in soil and water.
Soft tissue infection after trauma, surgery (isn't that trauma?) and in vasculopaths (most often from a foot ulcer) (PubMed). I love the abstract: "The clinical outcome of the patients was uniformly good after antibiotic treatment, except in 4 patients who suffered recurrence of the infection." So it wasn't uniformly good, now was it?
Bacteremia and other nosocomial infections in the immunoincompetent, increasingly reported in cystic fibrosis.
